Have you heard of Alamo Square?
What about the Painted Ladies?
No, they aren’t some sordid display on a street corner. 🙂
The Painted Ladies are a row of traditionally San Franciscan Victorian homes
But what makes them spectacular is their location.
Many TV programs and movies, that are set in San Francisco, have used this view.
I remember seeing it in the opening scenes of each “Full House” episode.
You’ve got to view them from the right angle though.
You have to hike up to the highest vantage point that Alamo Square offers, to get the best views.
As you can see the houses are on a typical San Franciscan incline.
A less foggy day would probably have helped the view a little…however asthmatics, like myself, don’t want too breathtaking a view. 🙂
Each individual house was unique and oozing with character.
They’ve got tall and compact down to a fine art.
The less ‘view appreciative’ of our group – yep, the men – took off to the park after a quick squiz to see what all the fuss was about,
…while the rest of us went for a stroll around the park.
Every side of Alamo Square offers pretty views
But none matched the picturesque Painted Ladies.
